I bought a Lacie d2 External HD and want to back up my computer before I take it in for service. As this is new to me I have some questions. 1. Do/Should I make the external HD a bootable drive? What would be the advantages? How do you do this? 2. I want to back up iPhoto which has over 10,000 pictures. I am not so worried about iTunes as I do have that backed up on my iPod. I would like to be able to have this data automaticaly updated on the external drive when I add pictures or music. Is this possible and how do I do it? Thanks for the help?
